The Art of Storytelling: Telling True Stories Well

Keynote Session Track

Stop me if you’ve heard this: “Humans are hardwired for stories.” Or: “Storytelling is the new marketing.”

But what does that really mean? How does something squishy like “story” drive real business success? And how can you use your brand stories to connect with customers, grow your business, do work you love?

To succeed with content marketing now and the years to come, we need to rethink our foundational stories based on a new framework for 2021. And critically: We need to think how we tell them. (Hint: There are four vital factors.)

In this lively, high-energy talk, master storyteller Ann Handley will educate you, inspire you, and leave you ready to tell stories that pack awallop. She’ll show Marketing Breakthroughs 2021 superstars (that’s you!) how to tell stories that both nurture new customers and nourish the ones you already have.

You’ll learn:
– Why Storytelling is the brilliant marketer’s best maneuver
– The Four Factors of Storytelling Success that you need to craft the very best customer experiences
– How other organizations are succeeding with storytelling
– BONUS: A specific template you can use to tell your own brand story

Let’s demystify Storytelling together in this lively and enlightening talk by the World’s First Chief Content Officer herself! Who’s in?

#Ghosted: How To Engage and Convert the Silent, the No-Shows, and the Unreachable

We’ve all seen it. A lead or account signs up to a webinar, downloads a ton of resources and it looks like they’re really interested in you. But when it comes to attending an event or taking that first call with an SDR – they ghost you. It sucks. So how can we engage these no shows – or at least try and figure out who’s serious and who’s wasting our time? In this session we’ll explore:

  • Why you need to differentiate between marketer-defined engagement and engagement that means a lead is ready for a conversion.
  • How to re-engage no shows with diverse content, formats and channels.
  • Balancing the need of your buyer to work on their terms vs. your need to know if they are ever going to buy.
  • Tips, tricks and actions to take with no shows to make your pipeline stronger and more reliable.

How to Use Webinars to Supercharge Your Demand Gen

Webinars and online events have exploded in the past couple of years. Even before 2020, research by SiriusDecisions found that webinars were the highest-rated human touchpoint for buyers. However, even though on-demand viewing is moving towards becoming the most popular method of webinar engagement, many marketers still plan their webinars in a one-off fashion, limiting success and reducing efficiency. So how can marketers plan an efficient and scalable webinar series that continually adds to the pipeline in the most effective way?  In this session we’ll explore:

  • The types of webinar and online events that are easy to scale
  • How to identify your target audience and their needs based on their buying journey
  • How to repurpose and reactivate your webinars so a single recording pays off several times over
  • How to use engagement data and other KPIs to continually improve the success of your webinars over time

Going Global: How to Create Local Experiences for Regional Audiences

When one of your campaigns has performed brilliantly in one region, it shouldn’t be surprising that you’re asked to replicate it in another market — particularly if your colleagues in international offices don’t have the same resources you do. After all, now that buying decisions are online, it’s easy to think that reaching new markets is no big deal.

In reality, international marketing is far from easy. A programme that drives a ton of business in one market can easily fall flat in another. Worse still, you may even damage your brand or scupper existing deals. So what are the steps you should follow before you simply copy and paste your marketing and promote it in another part of the world?

Join experts from ON24, NetLine and Iron Horse to learn how you can successfully scale your B2B marketing in new markets and avoid the common yet hard-to-see pitfalls of international marketing. In this session you’ll discover:

  • How to recalibrate your targeting based on regional characteristics.
  • Why great localisation is much more than translation.
  • The cultural considerations that make local buying processes very different.
  • The actionable steps you should follow before running your existing campaigns in new markets.
